  1. Kangaroo Island Airport

    Kangaroo Island Airport

    The official opening of KI Airport by the then Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull. I was contracted to do the external and internal timber cladding and decking. During the build I purchased the Mavic Pro and was asked to provide some footage... this is the result.

    Flying at an airport

    Hi all, I know that it normally is forbidden, but I had the chance to fly at an airport. An abonded one (it used to be an international airport until 1997). A few days ago I spotted this airport near my current holiday house. A short video can be found here (including flying nearby the old air...

    Apple's Drone images

    I'm interested in where this image might be from I'm also interested in how Apple is able to do this drone footage of an airport with all the NFZ spaces. This is on their 4k Apple TV. The planes are all moving so this is not a static satellite image.

    Drone laws Morroco

    Hi, I was wondering if there is anything I can do in my situation. I failed to do my research on Drone Laws in Morroco, and on our way to Amsterdam passing through Marrakesh for a few days I have my Mavic Air with me. I genuinely did not see any signs to declare a Drone upon arriving and because...

    How To Take Mavic Air From Dubai Airport?

    Hi! I got replacement from from DJI. A new Mavic Air. On my request, DJI sent it from Hong Kong to Dubai, from where a friend will get it to India. I have heard that the authorities at Dubai airports are strict about drones. Have heard two instance where a friend was carrying a drone unpacked...

    Small airport advisory and no answer

    Hello all, I have 3 small airports that I get advisory notices about in AirMap near my home. If I win too fly and do not get an answer when I call the supplied number what should I do? Can I assume they are closed, after 2/3 calls or so and not need to be concerned? I’m new to this great hobby...

    Flying in big cities (heliports galore)

    Hey all, Just got a spark yesterday and registered with the FAA. I'm in Philly and airmap shows I'm in the 5mi radius of an airport and 26 heliports. Calling all of them for a 15 minute flight is just not worth the hassle. B4UFLY also tells me I'm within a 5mi radius bit won't show me which...

    Drone forbidden in certain countries... but so are parts?

    Hello everybody! We travel around with a drone (we don't have a "base" to return to after every trip) and we find ourselves in very inconvenient situations when we want to go to a country where drones aren't allowed. We are wondering if traveling with drone parts instead of a whole drone would...

    Legal flying

    So there are tons of posts about this but was hoping I could get a clear response. I have registered my Mavic Air with the FAA. Everywhere near me falls within 5 miles of an airport. All are recreational and have no control tower so I have been flying and have not had an issue yet. Question 1...

    Make sure you have a spotter when doing FPV!

    So here is a story, and also cautionary tale, for those using FPV systems (especially near airports). I am a student at an aviation university built onto an airport, and I was flying my Mavic with a friend about 1.5-2 miles away at a nearby field. I had called the tower and unlocked the zone...

    Reporting FAA map errors

    One out of five airports on here don’t exist. One “airstrip” is a tri-county region’s garbage dump. Has been for 17 years. It’d be nice to have accurate data.

    Hollywood Sign & The Burbank Airport (BUR)

    The Hollywood Sign is 4.69 miles away from the BUR airport. I called the phone number listed on the Airmap app and was connected to the tower with outbound voicemail that said, "if you are a drone pilot asking for permission, consider it refused." Yikes... seems a bit harsh and against the...

    Most irresponsible drone pilot of 2017!

    Mr. "NS films&editing" flew very close to NFZ airport and basically was touching planes while they’re landing. I hope this guy will be punished somehow and serve as an educational example for others. Here’s an original footage of this incident:
